    Thank you Kenng. I have been quite busy lately, but have been tossing around a few new strap ideas. Hopefully I will have some new designs soon. In the mean time, here is a Medium Brown Bridle Leather strap and wallet combo.

    Great work! Really well done straps, wallet looked nice too ;) Would be interesting to see you branch out with some other designs.

    Thank you very much. Others have asked to see different designs as well, but I'm not sure in which direction to go. I gather people want simpler straps. Any ideas?

    How about rally style straps ? They look cool and the vintage heuers and similar are buzzing right now .. A lot of people wanting to dress their vintage watch with a nice aftermarket strap

    I like the rally strap idea a lot. That will be next up! For now, Here is a strap I recently made for a forum member here:

    Very nice! I bet there will be a happy forum user in the future. I think Rally straps are a good idea, they do well on sportier watches and your current work pairs well with dress watches so the two different styles will compliment each other nicely. I do like how you bring your straps to a very sharp point on the tapered end. Most of the time they are more rounded off, or shallower tapers.

    I appreciate your feedback. I really do need to add some more sporty straps. The rally is on hold while I finish these two orders up. They are Chevre Sully goat leather from Alran tannery in France. I think that this leather might lend itself to sportier straps also.

    Here is the leather prepared to be split down to size on my Bell Knife Skiver

    Wow, excellent work. Like you, I'm definitely a 'how it's made' guy. The finished product is one thing, but seeing the workmanship that goes into it is fantastic. This is one to follow for sure!
